Check out this robot built by John Nolan for the Poke HereEast spot.
We created a film to explain our vision and ambitions for Here East to technologists, creatives and makers everywhere. And what better way to do it than with your very own 8ft, hand-built robot!
Introducing Here East, one of London’s biggest developments: over a million square feet of hyper-connected commercial space.
The robots are taking over – and our robot was designed and hand built in East London by self-confessed maker and tinkerer John Nolan.
Believe it or not, everything is 100% real: no CGI, just pure talent and craft.
Filmed on location at Here East, it took us eight weeks to have a fully working (and articulate) robot.
